Ray Winstone plays the Alzheimer's afflicted Frank, a previously formidable man confined to a residential home, a shadow of his former self. James (Jim Sturgess), after many months of searching, finally finds his father figure and breaks him loose from the nursing home, beginning a rather dangerous road trip laced with gallows humour. However, with Frank's mind failing and James' motives unclear, the film gradually unravels the past of both characters.

Thanks to Cinemanx.


Whitecross has created a film with a strong vision that, by and large, it executes engagingly well.
